Thurs., 13   Morning devotions. Lena picks more currants. Two young men, one totally blind, come to look over the piano. Grace comes just as they are leaving. The blind one tunes it. May Tracy, Ruth Parker & Mrs. Tracy of Addison call. Tuttle gives me a ride over the back road thru Addison. The grass is breast high from fence to fence & the last bridge we go over has a big hole in it and the auto screams in fright as we drive off. Mary Ross calls late.
